Description

BY-PASS FLOW WASHER Robert R. Dahl, Chicago, Ill., assignor to The Dole Valve Company, Chicago, Ill., a corporation of Illinois Application October 30, 1953, Sen'al No. 389,209 7 Claims. (Cl. 13S-45) This invention relates to improvements in flow control devices for maintaining a substantially constant rate of fluid ow over a wide range of pressure variations and more particularly relates to such a ow control device in which fluid at low pressures is by-passed around the ow control element and passes through the central ilow control orifice of the element at high pressures.

A principal object of my invention is to provide a new and improved form of annular ow control member arranged to by-pass uid around the ow control member at low pressures and to close the by-pass passagesways and pass fluid through the central orifice of the flow control member at high pressures.

Another object of my invention is to reduce the threshold pressure of flow control washers at low pressures by providing by-pass passageways along the sides of the flow control member and contouring the downstream face of the ow control member to form a valve seating against a shoulder of the passageway in the ilow control member, to close the by-pass passageways upon predetermined increases in pressure on the upstream face of the flow control member.

A further object of my invention is to provide a novel and improved form of a resilient ow control member in which the control of the iow of iluid is obtained by llexing of the flow control member against a shoulder in a uid passageway by the pressure acting on the upstream side thereof, and in which the downstream face of the flow control member is recessed in spaced relation with respect to the shoulder, and a plurality of by-pass passageways are provided in the periphery of the ow control member and opening into the recess on the downstream face thereof, to accommodate the by-pass of uid past the central orifice of the flow control member at low pressures, and to accommodate the flow control member to move into engagement with the shoulder and block the by-pass of uid along the sides of the iow control member at high pressures, and then control the iiow of fluid by the flexing of the main body of the ilow control member inwardly toward its center and outwardly along the shoulder, to reduce the crosssectional area of said orifice as the pressure thereon increases.

A further object of my invention is toprovide a novel and improved form of ilow control device in which a resilient annular ow control member is seated against a shoulder in a passageway and is so arranged as to by-pass fluid past the periphery of the ow control member at low pressures and to block the passage of fluid along the periphery of said flow control member at higher pressures, and control the ow solely by exing of the ow control member into engagement with the shouldered seat thereof.

A still further object of my invention is to provide a more ecient and simpler form of ow control member having 'oy-pass passageways along the periphery thereof to pass uid at low pressures along the sides thereof, and contoured on the' downstream face thereof to be s Patent O 2,728,355 Patented Dec. 27, 1955 free from the seat of the ow control member and accommodate uid to pass thereby through said by-pass passageways at low pressures and to block the passage of iluid thereby at higher pressures and restrict the crosssectional area of the central portion thereof to effect a constant delivery rate through said ilow control member for a wide range of pressure variations without deformation of the flow control member beyond either face thereof.

This application is a companion application to my application Serial No. 389,210, filed herewith and entitled Flow Control Structure. v

These and other objects of my invention will appear from time to time as the following specification proceeds and with reference to the accompanying drawings wherein:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary cross-sectional View taken through a uicl flow passageway, showing a ow control member constructed in accordance with my invention in a passageway in a relaxed position, with no iluid pressure on the flow control member;

Figure 2 is a view somewhat similar to Figure 1, but showing the flow control member in a exedcondition, effected by the pressure of fluid acting on the upstream face and sides thereof; and

Figure 3 is a bottom plan view of the owcontrol member shown in Figure 1.

In the embodiment of my invention illustrated in the drawing, I have shown a portion of the casing 10, which may be a valve body, a conduit or the like. The casing 16 is shown as having an enlarged diameter passageway 11 leading therethrough for a portion of the length thereof, and terminating into a reduced diameter axially aligned passageway 12 which may be connected with a valve or a fluid delivery pipe or conduit or the like.

At the junction of the enlarged diameter passageway 11 with the reduced diameter passageway 12 is a shoulder 14 extending at right angles to the walls of said passageway and having a relatively large cross-sectional area compared with the cross-sectional area of the outlet passageway 12. The shoulder 14 s'shown as forming a seat for a resilient annular flow control member 15. Spaced from the upstream side of the flow control member 15 is a retaining ring 16, which may be a snap ring and may be snapped into position in the inlet passageway 11, to retain the ilow control member to the seat 14. The retaining ring 16 is shown as being spaced from the vseat or shoulder 14 a distance suicient to accommodate a limited freedom of movement of said ow control member between said seat and retaining ring.

The annular iow control member 15 may be made from a resilient or elastic material, such as rubber or one of the well known substitutes for rubber, such as neoprene, and the like, so as to readily be exible in a downstream direction into engagement with the shoulder 14 upon increases in the pressure of fluid acting thereon through the inlet passageway 11.

The ow control member 15 is shown as having a relatively flat face 17 on its upstream side when in a relaxed condition and as having a central opening or orifice 19 leading therethrough, axially aligned with the outlet 12 and of a smaller cross-sectional area than the cross-sectional area of the outlet 12.

The flow control member 15 is also shown as having a uniformly contoured or rounded shoulder 20 leading from the upstream face 17 to the orice 19, to provide a uniform relatively smooth orifice for all degrees of flexure of said ow control member. The ow control member 15 also has an outer wall 21 fitting within the passageway y11 and having an inwardly tapered lower end portion 22, tapering inwardly to provide a space between the wall of thepassageway 11 into which the ow con- 3 t t trol member may flex upon increases in pressure acting. on the upstream face of said flow control member.

The outer wall 21 of the iiow control member 15 is provided with a plurality of by-pass passageways 23, 23, shown as notches of a generally semi-circular form opening to the periphery of said flow control member, for passing fluid at low pressures around the side of said ilow control member. it should be understood that while the by-pass passageways 23 are herein shown as being generally semi-circular, that they need not be so shaped but may be of any form desired.

The downstream face of the iow control member 15 is shown as being contoured or recessed inwardly of the wall thereof, to forma plurality of segmental ribs 24, V24 extending along the periphery thereof to the by-pass passageways 23, 23, the outer margins of which ribs are formed by theinwardly tapered outer wall portion, 22. The ribs 24, 24 serve to space the contoured portion of the downstream face of the flow control member 15 in spaced relation with respect to the shoulder 14, to accommodate the free passage of iiuid through the by-pass passageways 23, 23 into the outlet passageway 12, upon low pressure conditions in the inlet passageway 11.

Within the ribs 24, 24 on the downstream face of the ow control member 15 is a generally annular downwardly opening passageway 25, terminating at its inner margins into segmental projections or ribs 26, 26 and into outer depending lips 27, 27 of a recessed or concave face 29. The recessed, or concaveface 29 is shown as being in the general form of the frustum of a cone terminating at its inner margins in an annular shouldered recess 30 at the downstream side of the orifice 19.

The segmental ribs 26, 26 and lips 27, 27 are spaced downwardly from the bottom portion of the flow control member defining the top of the channel and form control edges and a valve means engageable with the shoulder 14 upon increases in pressure on the upstream surface and sides of the flow control member 15.

It may be seen from the foregoing that as the pressure of the fluid acting on the upstream face 17 and sides of the flow control member 15 increases, said flow control member flexes in the direction of the flow of uid through the orice 19 toward the shouldered seat 14irst Vbringing the segmental ribs 26, 2 6 into engagement with the shoulder and then bringing the lips 27, 27 into engagement with said shoulder, and restricting the cross-sectional area of the orifice 19 by exure of the body of fthe flow control member into engagement with the shoulder v19 and outwardly therealong.

It may further be seen that as the segmental ribs 26, 26 lfirst engage the shoulder 14, the flow of fluid through the by-pass passageways will be restricted to the space between the lips 27, 27 and the shoulder 14, resulting in a substantial reduction in the ow of fluid through the bypass passageways as well as through the central orifice 19, and that as the pressure of iiuid on the upstream face 17 of the ow control member 15 increases further, the lips 27, 27 will then come into engagement with the shoulder or seat 14, Seating against said shoulder and blocking the flow of iiuid throughthe by-pass passageways and then controlling the iiow solely by flexing of the body of the ow control member inwardly along the shoulder 14.

It will be observed from this figure that in all positions of deformation of the iiow control member 15, like the ow control member shown in my companion application Serial No. 389,210 previously mentioned, that the orice 19 is spaced from the inlet side of the reduced diameter outlet passageway 12, and that the flow control member is never deformed into said outlet passageway. The flow control member rather reacts against the shoulder 14 and spreads outwardly lth'erealong in its periphery and inwardly therealong along the recessed portion thereof, and at the same time flexesalong its central portion to reduce the cross-sectional area at the orice 19 upon increases in' pressure. The flow control member positively blocks the flow of uidthrough the bypass passageways 23, 23 `above certain predetermined pressures and then controls the ow solely by reduction in cross-sectional area of the central orifice 19 as the pressure in the upstream face of said control member increases, so as to provide a uniform iiow throughout the entire pressure range, with a reduced threshhold pressure and a resultant free ow of iiuid under low pressure conditions.

it will beunderstood that `modifications and variations may be effected in the present invention without departing from the scope of the novel concepts thereof.
